Giants injury report: Jawill Davis misses practice with concussion

Giants could be looking for yet another return man Monday night The New York Giants have already gone through Kaelin Clay, Stacy Coley, Cody Latimer, Odell Beckham Jr. and Jawill Davis as kick returners this season. Monday night, the Giants might have to dig even deeper as Davis popped up on the Friday injury report with a concussion that kept him out of practice. “Jawill had a persistent headache, so the medical staff determined he should be placed in the concussion protocol,” head coach Pat Shurmur said on Friday. Davis, a rookie undrafted free agent, has averaged 24.4 yards on seven...

Giants “kicking the tires” on Corey Coleman in hopes he can reach his potential

Giants hope he can move on from questions about his work ethic, attitude Corey Coleman has gone from the 15th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns to being traded and then cut by two teams since August of this year, and now landing on the practice squad for the New York Giants. So, why did the Giants take a flier on the 24-year-old Coleman? “We brought him here because we feel like he’s got a future. He’s very talented, he’s fast, he’s a good receiver,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “He’s been a couple places already. We’re kicking the tires on him with the...

Fantasy football: Start/sit for Week 7

Fantasy football: Start/sit for Week 7

Who should be in your lineup this week? With Week 7, we’re in the thick of the fantasy football season. It’s the first week of four-team byes, so the pool of players is the smallest it will be, making start/sit decisions even more important. With that said, here’s start/sit for Week 7: Running back Start: Kerryon Johnson, Detroit Lions Johnson has only gotten 10 or more carries twice this season — Week 3 against New England (16 carries, 106 yards) and Week 5 against Green Bay (12 carries, 70 yards).

Giants news, 10/19: Giants “staying positive” despite rough start

Giants aim to “put one in the bucket,” go from there Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Friday headlines. Giants still hoping for turnaround The Giants are 1-5. The chance they will make the playoffs is virtually non-existent — 1 percent per FiveThirtyEight, and the chances of even a .500 season appear slim. Still, players are trying to be optimistic, trying to stay together, which is a change from a season ago. Landon Collins: “You still see smiles in people’s faces when they come up in here. Positive outlooks, nobody is saying the season’s over, nobody said that...

Pat Shurmur: “We’ve got to win more games”

Giants’ coach talks about his personality, roster moves, more New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur touched on a wide array of topics Thursday as he met with the media. Here are some of the takeaways from his media briefing. On possibly changing his demeanor “My team knows my true personality. For me to rant and rave, or say something that can be written and reported about, and me making it about me, I don’t think that makes you strong and I don’t think that makes anybody think that I care anymore than the players in the locker room. They know my true feelings, and that’s what I care...

Week 7 picks, predictions against the spread

Who is Dan picking this weekend? The winning streak is over. 7-8 last week. It’s becoming official now that I will no longer change picks between when this posts on Thursday and when games kick off on Sunday regardless of injury news that comes out.

How can the Giants’ defense improve after their mini-bye week?

How can the Giants’ defense improve after their mini-bye week?

How could the Giants make use of their extra four days to patch some holes? Normally at this point in the pre-game phase of the week, we would be looking at how the New York Giants defense stacks up against the Atlanta Falcons’ potent offense. But instead we’re going to do what the Giants themselves should do, and hopefully are doing, and take the extra days afforded by Thursday Night Football to break the weekly grind, take a breath, and problem solve. The first step in problem solving is, of course, defining your problem. The Giants as a franchise have a lot of them, certainly more...

Saquon Barkley knows he’s more boom than bust

Running back speaks at event for high school students Saquon Barkley knows how you probably describe is running style and he’d like that to change. “I don’t think my play is boom or bust,” he told Big Blue View at a Visa Financial Football event aimed to teach high school students money management skills. “I think that I’m a guy who could make an explosive play happen at any moment. I think you could make that argument in college, but so far in the NFL, it’s not like I’m back there dancing around — running this way, running that way. I’m not doing that. I’m taking what...

Giants news, 10/18: Derek Carr the replacement for Eli Manning?

Since the Carr speculation is out there, let’s talk about it Big Blue View contributor Dan Pizzuta is now off the hook for taking to Twitter — jokingly — and suggesting the idea that Derek Carr of the Oakland Raiders, who are being torn apart by Jon Gruden, could be the next quarterback of the New York Giants. Pizzuta, he swears not seriously, tossed out these two tweets recently about Carr and the Giants: The more I've thought about, the more petrified I've become of the non-zero chance of Derek Carr as the Giants' 2019 starting quarterback.— Dan Pizzuta (@DanPizzuta) October 15,...

Giants at Falcons 2018, Week 7: “Close in games” doesn’t really matter — only 1-5 does

Can the Giants start winning some of those one-score games? 1-5. Each week when we do these “first looks” at the upcoming game for the New York Giants those focus largely on numbers. The only number that really matters for the Giants as they prepare to head south for a Monday Night Football game against the Atlanta Falcons is that 1-5 record. Whatever side you’ve chosen in all the Eli Manning-Odell Beckham Jr.-John Mara drama that has been unfolding, the source of all of that drama is the 1-5 record. Mara says he is “embarrassed” at being 1-5. Coach Pat Shurmur says he is...

Confidence? Giants fans don’t have any

Confidence? Giants fans don’t have any

Ninety-one percent of voters have no confidence in the team’s direction As you might expect, the confidence level of New York Giants fans in their team has fallen off the cliff with the team at 1-5 through six games for the second consecutive season. That’s only 9 percent of fans who voted in our weekly ‘FanPulse’ survey that have confidence in the direction of the team. It’s hard to blame the 91 percent majority. The Giants are mired in drama centering around Eli Manning, Odell Beckham Jr. and co-owner John Mara. They have lost three straight games. They currently...
